Summary: Wast of money i wouldn't even recommend TomTom to anyone anymore (get a android/ios phone). This thing died and TomTom told me to get lost. i would have paid to get it fixed and gift it to some random person, but just got the two finger salute. Sorry TomTom your fail and its not like any of this stuff is useful with apps like Google Maps, Navigate and Waze. Disappointing.
Summary: This unit is so much more advanced than the TomTom ONE I had. Bluetooth, external jacks, and much more features available. Plus the total logic and ease of programming. I've played with a Magellan, and find this one to be much more user-friendly.
Summary: So I never reviewed this at the time I purchased it, but thats OK because I feel that my review will be a bit more accurate after owning it long term. To start with, great functionality. We have used all the major GPS brands, but time after time the TomTom units we purchase have been our favorites. This one has been no exception, but over the life of the unit there have been some flaws.
Summary: The Tom Tom GO630 is supposed to have great applications. The problem is with the touch screen. The unit automatically switches to the help mode. No matter what you do, the unit switches to this mode rendering it useless. This problem is not unique and should have been found by quality control, and a recall issued. Customer service is a nightmare! I was deployed much of the time I was trying to find solutions and the warranty expired.
Summary: The unit has worked alright. I've had the usual issues with it taking a longer route at times, but no big deal. The problem comes when after it keeps nagging you to check for updates, you actually have the misfortune of doing so. After what appeared to be a standard update which went fine, I tried to turn the unit on only to find the update had scrambled my maps. Searching the web, I found this to be a very common issue.
Summary: I bought this device on February 2010 when I moved to USA. I am traveling a lot from my work and Tom Tom 630 has been worth of every penny. It detects location very quickly compared to my phone (without data connection - with data connection my mobile is faster of course). Easy to use and the maps are just great (only problem is that you have to pay for the updates, I am using one year old maps and they work very well still). Reliable device..
